    I think the fact that their slash lines are nearly identical and yet it's considered a "great" year for Murph and a lousy year for Wright would indicate Wright is still the better hitter.

    Wright has hit great regardless of where he's been in the lineup. I don't think there is any magic to him hitting 5th.... in his best years he's hit 3rd.

    And lineup order is largely overrated...a...

    Well it looks like the OP would argue against that (he basically said as much in his post). And maybe macattack (if he put his lineup together thinking the best hitters should be at the top...but he...

    Wright is a better hitter than Murphy. Wright's awful year is basically the equivalent of Murph's great year. The whole "best hitter needs to hit 3rd" thing is overrated though. The 2nd and 4th...

    Well his average with RISP is still pretty good. Does that mean he hits well with RISP against righties, despite having poor numbers against them?

    Stanton and Tulo don't really belong in that conversation. There was no real indication that the Mets could have traded for them.

    Rubin is the best beat guy out there. And why would he have an axe to grind towards the team if the guy who he was mad at is long gone? (He and Omar have long since "made up" anyway). He was...

    It's nice to have a guy that can still hit close to (or now over) .300 and we can wonder what is wrong with him.

    I've been concerned about the bad numbers against RHP, and the lousy K rate and...

    He's loyal to the Mets and wanted to stay and help turn the team around. I don't see anything wrong with that. As a Mets fan, I am certainly glad one...
